National was formed on August 27, 1947, as a group of 24 independent car rental operators with 60 locations and 800 vehicles. In 1954, they became the first car rental brand to offer one-way rentals for those wishing to rent cars in one town and leave them in another. In 1959 they incorporated as a for-profit corporation and quickly established for itself an identity as "the best in localized, personal service". National became the first car rental company to bring computers into daily reservation operations when it equipped its regional reservation offices with the "Telemax" computer system in 1966. During the coming years National continued to grow and evolve, and in 1987 introduced the industry's first, comprehensive frequent-renter program, "Emerald Club", along with the "Paperless Express Rental Agreement". This made car rental much faster by using information stored in a computer to process the whole transaction in seconds. National continued to develop ways to make the car rental process more efficient. Innovations included the "Emerald Aisle," where members select their own cars and are on their way without filling out any paperwork, and the "Choice Rental Process" which gives all National customers the ability to choose their own vehicle. For those who are not enrolled in Emerald Club, the company started the "QuickRent" service in 2002, which offers customers the ability to bypass the counter when they complete their rental transaction online.
National offers a selection of special services and products to the business traveler: the Affinity & Association Program, which offers club and association members a host of special benefits designed to make their time on the road easy and comfortable; the Business Program, which offers travelers great rates on car rentals - along with the consistently high level of service; the Meeting & Convention Program, which is dedicated to the success of a meeting; and the Government & Military Program, which offers discounted rates to U.S. Government and Department of Defense travelers on official business with authorized travel orders.
